3-to-8 line decoder/demultiplexer; inverting 74HC/HCT138
FEATURES

Output capability: standard

category: MSI
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The 74HC/HCT138 are high-speed Si-gate CMOS devices
and are pin compatible with low power Schottky TTL
(LSTTL). They are specified in compliance with JEDEC
standard no. 7A.
The 74HC/HCT138 decoders accept three binary
weighted address inputs (A
0
, A
1
, A
2
) and when enabled,
provide 8 mutually exclusive active LOW outputs (Y
0
to
Y
7
).
The 138 features three enable inputs: two active LOW
(E
1
and E
2
) and one active HIGH (E
3
). Every output will be
HIGH unless E
1
and E
2
are LOW and E
3
is HIGH.
This multiple enable function allows easy parallel
expansion of the 138 to a 1-of-32 (5 lines to 32 lines)
decoder with just four 138 ICs and one inverter.
The 138 can be used as an eight output demultiplexer by
using one of the active LOW enable inputs as the data
input and the remaining enable inputs as strobes. Unused
enable inputs must be permanently tied to their
appropriate active HIGH or LOW state.
The 138 is identical to the 238 but has inverting outputs.
